The ability to input a new record into my maintenance table requires choosing a record to link from my assets table. The issue of using auto number Unique Id’s for each table means the linked record search is not very useful. I have a table of more than 100 assets of different types. The “find a record to link” search function only lets you search according to the unique id, without being able to thin the search down by using the other columns like Type, or Asset Designation, or Manufacturer or Serial Number.
I believe a suggestion was made to allow a user to create a filter for the “find a record to link” search, but I think simply expanding the search capability beyond the first column would be ideal.
I also desperately need this feature. I want to to create a share view without having to reveal sensitive information (which is my search criteria), thus my sensitive information has to move to another column.
Yes please!!! We are unable to use formulas in our Primary Field as we are replicating the data structure of another database (WooCoommerce) - would be really helpful to be able to search for products to link to without having to know their IDs off by heart!
Surely not the best way, but this worked for me - but it’s primarily useful as a one off:
To be clear, this is of limited use, but it may work for certain limited use cases.
This is basic, BASIC functionality that is shockingly absent. Since yesterday, I’ve sunk about 10 hours into learning Airtable, but this oversight means it is time to look at other options.
A little baffled to see this issue unresolved by Airtable.
My inventory is grouped by order # and then numbered upon receipt.
Feels a little ridiculous looking up item #, making note and then scrolling through Linked Record options to select the correct record amongst all of the records with the same item # (but diff order #).
Yes, we really want this feature!
We set form numbers(i.e. order numbers, manufacturer’s numbers) in primary field.
but we have to search and link record by product-cd instead.
This is much needed.
Another +1 to the feature petition
+1, its been years since linked record functionality has been enhanced.
